Pitchfork hails Arcade Fire’s latest album Reflektor a “triumph” that sounds “lush and imaginative" but never "suffocates you with the fumes of its polish”, the Telegraph UK describes it as a “bafflingly brilliant art rock epic”, NME suggests co-producer James Murphy and band have “abandoned rock ‘n’ roll and made a “dance record”, Rolling Stone - “a thrilling act of risk and renewal…closer to turning-point classics such as U2's Achtung Baby and Radiohead's Kid A", the New York Times “an excess of generosity”, the Guardian (UK) “pure disco” and the Washington Post rains on the parade, arguing that although "they may be very nice people…Arcade Fire still sound like gigantic dorks with boring sex lives.” We let Ben Rayner at the Toronto Star have the last word: “Reflektor is so daringly ambitious, and so audibly excited about attaining its ambitions, that it’s easy to forgive its flaws.” Amen!
